The man, the myth, the mau5. Joel Thomas Zimmerman, known to fans and anyone who doesn’t live under a rock as deadmau5, is more valuable to the electronic music world than we could ever fathom. His dark progressive house/techno vibe marked a path for all producers trying to break into the industry that deadmau5 himself has helped create. In other words, Joel sits on a throne that he spent years building for himself. After all this time, deadmau5 is still an active part of EDM, releasing his own music and new music from artists the mau5 sees talent in on his record label, mau5trap. Along with the label, deadmau5 also has mau5trap Radio, and we’re featuring episode #035 for this week’s Radio Recap.
Joel is in the hot seat for this week’s episode, mixing tracks from artists like i_o, ATTLAS, Ghost Dance, Sian, and more. Mau5trap Radio isn’t just a mix to listen to if you’re craving a deep groove; deadmau5 is laying out for you artists that are likely to explode in the future. Deadmau5 has supported and seen through successful artists like Rezz, and gives artists an outlet to showcase their work through his collaborative mau5ville albums. Basically, we’re telling you to listen to deadmau5 because he’s never wrong.
See the mau5 himself on his Cube V3 tour at the Comerica Theatre on October 5th. Find your tickets now.
